JUNIORS 


Welcome to the Juniors’ section of the ESC website.

The Juniors are a busy and thriving part of the club and we offer many different opportunities to sail, race and have fun using the beautiful part of the harbour that Emsworth occupies.

We have fleets of Optimists, RS Fevas, Toppers and Lasers, as well as a few 29ers and 420s and RS Teras. Our Martlets programme is an organised and structured "learn to sail" programme, using Optimists, which runs each year from April to July.

There are also opportunities to do the same in a consolidated week during the school holidays. Beyond Martlets there is organised training to develop young sailors who wish to progress to local and national racing circuits as well as those who wish to concentrate on club sailing.

A highlight during the year is our Cobnor Camp. A weekend in July for the Juniors and their families to camp, sail and explore the harbour. Another highlight of the year is the Race Week which is held during the summer holidays. ESSC are also invited and we have keen racing for all abilities, together with numerous socials both on and off the water. Social events are held throughout the year for all the different age groups.

As a Volvo Champion Club (VCC) we make a commitment to deliver safe, effective racing and race training in RYA recognised classes via coaching and wider development of our young sailors. We work closely with other Chichester Harbour Federation clubs to deliver this training and currently offer Optimist and Feva training throughout the year.

We have an active Junior Committee and a Junior Captain. The Junior team are keen to hear the ideas of any club member and we look forward to seeing you at the Club.
